Shrinking word count!
I know a couple weeks ago I posted a note here that Insurgent was 60,000 words, which was a cool milestone… two thirds or so through the first draft.
But then I deleted 5,000 words of pure junk. Bummer. But trust me, you didn’t want to read them anyway.
Back to work. I still expect to finish it this spring.

Think of it as dropping a clothes size: Insurgent will be svelte, fit and sexy!
It’s tough to be tough on your words, but satisfying when it’s done.
